[QUOTE=delonglandscaping;3738586]Attachment 200743

This is the truck that i am looking at right now. It is 28,596.99 plus tax, title, and license's. It comes with the v-xt 9'6". The plow itself is worth 6k so i think this is a steal!

It is a 5.4 triton v8 4x4 with snow prep, power locks, power windows. 8 foot bed regular cab. Vinyl floor and seating with cab lights.

Let me know if you guys think its a good deal.

The trucks a pretty good deal man. I actually just bought a 2010 its a single cab just like that but black, but I went with the XLT package deal with the 6.8l V10 pretty good engine but kinda a gas hog. But I think mine ran me 26,xxx something like that. But with that plow I would go for it.

thats still really good. Thats such a good deal considering its a brand new truck and 3/4 ton. I think the 1500's and f-150 xl's run like 24.5k for 4x4. Where did you get yours because i would like to get an xlt just for the added features, chrome, and i want to get navigation and tracking in my trucks so i know where they are.

thats how i felt, i was thinking it would be a big pallet that i could even unload with the bobcat. I was extreamly unhappy and did talk to the distributor. They said the reason that was, was because i needed it in such short notice but it shouldnt have been thrown in unorganized piles and that far.

I got free delivery on 5 truck loads of materials from my complaint and they were really understanding when i showed them the pictures. e

yea i like it too. I like it because its more of a place where i can document my growth. I like seeing from year to year and what i said last year and look back and laugh.

I love seeing long term growth and thats what im working at now. Not getting a bunch of customers, but to be smart with the customers i have and have good paying, reliable clients that will come back to me year after year. I spend on average 10 minutes more on each property than i did in the summer and just the extra 10 minutes makes them all look so much better. Even on the really small properties.

I wish the pictures showed how good everything looked, all my lawns are soo green again and they are all ALMOST weed free after the aeration and fertilizer treatment.

Everything looks really nice, I hope to get pretty big next season. Got a few plans but so far everything is still in the planning stage. This winter when i graduate I'm really going to kick up advertising and all sorts of other things. If they did that to sod I ordered I would have said something to them and told them to do it right or leave my jobsite. I'm sure it didn't kill the sod by any means but it's very unprofessional. They way I look at it, if YOU hire a company like that to come deliver it, and they look like crap. I think it reflects back on us because WE hired these guys. But anyways, nice work.

I bought mine a Charles Gabus Ford in Urbandale Iowa. Im not sure if they have any left though. My choices were between a white, black, and maroon color I know they were all XLT's with the plow prep package. They actually went down because of the 2011's they had coming in and they need the room for them so they had to get the 10's out of there.

Sorry i misspoke , i got 190 yards of sod and 5 yards of top soil. The top soil was 14 per yard. Delievery was 65 dollars(which i think is b.s.) and the soil was around 2.50 cents per yard plus tax.

So give or take a few bucks it was right around 650. Is that a lot or something for you? those are the prices for sod up here. If i got 250 yards the price drops from 2.5 to 1.9
